poughkeepsie, and monticello has dropped down to a more comfortable 75 degrees. we do have a west to northwest wind flow kicking up a little bit of a breeze overnight as well as into tomorrow, so that'll give you some sort of relief even though it'll still be above average with your temperatures. courtesy of high pressure is going to be our dominant weather feature through tomorrow, so we're expecting another day just like today. although we'll see a few high clouds working in towards the afternoon, overall we should stay dry as we go into the second half of our weekend. an area of low pressure is just starting to get its act together across the northern plainings. this is actually going to make its way across to the great lakes region as we grow into monday, and a cold front that's associated with it will give us the chance of scattered showers and storms into beginning of next week. we're going to see the humidity build too, but until then we'll squeeze out one more nice and dry day across the region. temperatures very warm all across the nation, numbers in

popping up across the area, and so have your umbrella handy. tonight not the case. it'll be clear, breezy and dry with nice temperatures, lows dropping into the 50s north and west, 60s across much of the area with low 70s in and around the city. tomorrow mostly sunny by the afternoon, breezy and quite hot as temperatures approach 09 in -- 90 in many locations. the uv index will be very high, waves will be at 2-3 feet, and if you plan on going swimming, take some extra precautions because, like today, the rip current risk will be moderate. as we go into the beginning of next week, 91 for a high on monday with scattered showers and storms with more humidity will make it feel uncomfortable. 85 on wednesday, temperatures slowly starting to go back to more normal readings, so it looks better as we go into the end of the week. >> not terribly bad. >> no. enjoy tomorrow, it's going to be just like today. >> all right. we can do something -- >> yeah. >> okay.

the clubhouse? >> for ten years. cannot blame the kid for crying. absolutely not. >> humans cry. athletes are humans. sometimes athletes cry too. >> my team. >> showing some emotional intelligence, showing that you care, showing that it's your home and your family. i don't necessarily think it's such a bad thing. >> reputation president mike paul expressed frustration with whomever leaked the details before all players involve ised passed their physicals. flores was expected to face razzing later in his career, but paul also thought for a kid who signed with the mets from venezuela as a 16-year-old, flores' sniffling might improve his standing in the eyes of humans everywhere. >> it actually takes a strong man to cry. be just the opposite of what we've been taught. and i think the more we have emotional intelligence like that, the better we are overall as human beings.
6:51 pm
>> basketball players cry. golfers cry. >> out of respect for them, i didn't do any of my funny antics that i normally would do. >> super bowl-winning quarterbacks cry. perhaps the greatest male tennis player ever cries, and now so, too, does apparently the once and future starting shortstop for the metropolitans. i'm matt king, fox 5 news. >> got to say, ryan, i don't know if that was the best way to handle that. i mean, it's going to, of course, get into his head. >> yeah, it was a messy night, and the trade didn't happen, but all's well that ends well. he hit the game-winning walkoff home run last night as still a member of the mets, so that was big. hopefully more dramatics tonight at citi field. the mets get ready to unveil their newest big bat. we'll check in on the mets as they get ready to take on the [african-style music] take my hand to the land take my hand to the land, whoa-oh!
